This not only maximises the tangible benefits of research but also enriches the experience of our students, empowering them with a professional approach and enabling them to achieve their career ambitions.

We develop exciting live projects that range from design briefs with companies to competitions with professional bodies. 


Our departments draw on the expertise of staff with national and international reputations for their research, teaching and professional engagement.
